Ferrari 250 GT Tour de France!

The Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta not only has breathtaking looks, it remains arguably the greatest and most important Ferrari road/racing car ever built. Its forerunner was the 250 MM, so-named after the famous Mille Miglia race, which hard-charging Italian hillclimb champion Giovanni Bracco won for Ferrari in 1952. That achievement, plus Ferrari’s first World Driver’s Championship win with Alberto Ascari driving the Type 500 and the company’s first collaboration with Pinin Farina (the 212 Inter cabriolet) combined to make the year 1952 a particularly significant one in the marque’s history.
260 bhp, 2,953 cc SOHC V-12 engine with three Weber 38 DC3 carburetors, four-speed all-synchromesh manual transmission, independent front suspension with unequal-length A-arms and coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs and parallel trailing arms, and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 102.4 in.

  • Placed 1st overall at the 1956 Tour de France Auto
  • The actual car that instituted the “Tour de France/TdF” nomenclature
  • Raced and owned by the legendary Marquis Alfonso de Portago
  • The fifth of only seven Scaglietti-bodied first-series competition berlinettas
  • Awarded First in Class at Pebble Beach and Meadow Brook and the Prix Blancpain Award at the Louis Vuitton Concours d’Elegance
  • Cavallino Classic Platinum award winner
  • A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the most historically significant competition Ferraris of all time

The first few berlinetta examples faired reasonably well in various European hill climbs and sprints over the summer of 1956, but the new road going competition model experienced its greatest success at the Tour de France Auto in September, a six-day rally of hill climbs, drag races, and circuit competitions. Piloted by a flamboyant and daring Spanish marquis, the new berlinetta was to become synonymous with the French race itself.
